The intersection of science and practice

We are a non-profit committed to helping communities and individuals heal from trauma by sharing science-based insights in order to promote and cultivate resilience. We believe what is predictable is preventable and that resilience trumps adversity.

Community

Community engagement is one of the pillars of CRI's work. Our goal is to empower communities and individuals through innovative resilience-based strategies.

Building

Resilience is not something we are born with or learned overnight. Rather, we view resilience as an action, a verb. Building resilience begins with learning the science.
